GAELIC football looks set to become the next big thing in Andalucia, with the number of Irish expats on the Costa del Sol expanding year-on-year.

New clubs have been set up in Estepona, Granada and Cordoba and spokesperson for the Andalucian Association, Seamus Hayes, has called for more people to get involved.

He said: “We would really like to continue to grow the sport in the region. We are looking for players from all standards to get involved as well as people to help out behind the scenes with coaching and organising events.

“There is a great social side to the clubs here, with families and friends actively involved and taking part in the playing and non-playing side of thing.”

San Isidro’s Estepona and the Costa Gaels in Marbella are both currently looking for players in preparation for the region’s inaugural cup competition, due to be held in Sevilla on November 22.

For more information on San Isidro’s contact and to get in touch with the Costa Gaels call 617325727.
